    Transfer Files From iMac to MacBook Pro
    I would like to be able to transfer some of my files on my iMac to my MacBook Pro. I connected them both with a FireWire Cable, thinking an icon would show up as if it was an external HD. Is it as easy as this?
    Thanks For any Help.

    I found this guide on I'm at work right now do I can't try it but this should be the answer.

    Transferring files between two Macintosh computers
    There are many ways to transfer files from one Mac to another.

    You can transfer files via the Internet using a .Mac or another Internet account. You can copy files over an Ethernet network or wireless network such as AirPort. You can use one computer to burn the files on a recordable CD and then copy the files from the CD to the other computer. Or you can use an external disk such as a Zip drive, portable USB or FireWire hard disk, or even a floppy disk if you purchase a USB floppy drive.

    If both computers are using Mac OS X, you can connect the two computers with a FireWire cable and use Migration Assistant, located in the Utilities folder in your Applications folder. Migration Assistant transfers your files and important settings to your new computer.
